netcdf.inqDimID

Return dimension ID

Syntax

dimid = netcdf.inqDimID(ncid,dimname)

Description

dimid = netcdf.inqDimID(ncid,dimname) returns dimid, the identifier of the dimension specified by the character string dimname. You can use the netcdf.inqDim function to retrieve the dimension name. ncid is a netCDF file identifier returned by netcdf.create or netcdf.open.

This function corresponds to the nc_inq_dimid function in the netCDF library C API. To use this function, you should be familiar with the netCDF programming paradigm. See netcdf for more information.

Examples

This example opens the example netCDF file included with MATLAB®, example.nc.

% Open netCDF example file.
ncid = netcdf.open('example.nc','NC_NOWRITE');

% Get name and length of first dimension
[dimname, dimlen] = netcdf.inqDim(ncid,0);

% Retrieve identifier of dimension.
dimid = netcdf.inqDimID(ncid,dimname)

dimid =
